The grey-sided flowerpecker (Dicaeum celebicum) is a species of bird in the family Dicaeidae. It is endemic to Indonesia. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.

Subspecies and distribution[edit]

The grey-sided flowerpecker has four subspecies:[2][3]

  1. D. c. talautense, endemic to Talaud Islands
  2. D. c. sanghirense, endemic to Sangihe and Siau Island
  3. D. c. celebicum, endemic to Sulawesi, Manadotua, Bangka, Lembeh, Togian, Muna and Butung
  4. D. c. sulaense, endemic to Sula Islands and Banggai Islands

Prior to June 2014, a fifth subspecies, D. c. kuehni was recognized. However, genetic analsysis suggested it was actually a distinct species, Dicaeum kuehni. The species lives in the Wakatobi archipelago.[3]
